I picked up Hannenbow earlier, and I'll probably be picking up Beatnes later tonight. I had fun messing around and trying to get the plant to bloom. I could definitely see me just setting this thing up to run as background noise while i'm messing around on the computer, or if i need to relax after work or something. I like how you can turn on the angle degree notations if you want to get all technical with your plant setups, and you can also switch plants with select to get different ones to try. if you were a fan of Rhythm Heaven's little minigames, these might be fun for you... they're not really 'games' so much as they are 'neat little sound applications'. i just wish you could save the music you create and listen to it later if you wanted. :/

@Twario: when it's called 'Yoshi's Story' and yet doesn't even have as much 'story' to it as SMW2: Yoshi's Island... yeah, i'd be expecting more to it, really.

the main things were that it didn't have much of a 'story' and it wasn't very hard, really. The entire point of the game was for the player to attempt to outdo themselves by aiming to collect mostly melons, trying to get the black and white Yoshis, playing through each level (as in getting through all the different possible pathways through the 'story') and then, when they're all unlocked for replay, to try and rack up a better score than before in each level. That, and the annoying sounds/soundtrack, didn't sit well with everyone. :3

The first thread includes detailed instructions for converting via iTunes by yours truly, the second is an older thread where i believe there was discussion of using other programs to convert your music files. Feel free to bump either of them. :3

@yendi: it'd probably work something like the way it does now with the Wii, where you'll have to keep enough space open on your DSi to load the game into memory before you can play it, but i can see that happening eventually. :3

i don't like that thumbs-up-thumbs-down/plus-1-minus-1 stuff. like you said in your previous comment, Luigi, on some sites the comment gets grayed out and barely readable/disappears into the comment tree if it's voted down enough, which I don't agree with -- we're all here and we all deserve to have our say, whether your opinion is unpopular or not, and also i can see that function being abused easily on the main site. it's easy enough to skip over something you don't feel like reading. just like forum post counts, i'm happy we don't have it here. :3

You need to get 'Oak's Parcel' (as in your Pokedex) from Viridian before you can trade. As for having two pokemon in your party, I'm pretty sure this is the case, but I can't find any proof for it online (except for latter incarnations of the game)... I did look in my own manuals for Pokemon Red/Blue, Yellow, and Silver, but none of them mentioned you needing at least two pokemon in your own party to trade. Sorry, man. :(

@hoodtrix: there's always Metacritic; that place gathers scores from websites across the net as well as magazines IRL and collects them for easy access. There's also links provided to reviews online to go with the scores if available. Just type the name of the game you're interested in up into the search box and it'll pull up what it's got for you. :3

@hoodtrix: there's Mario Kart DS if she likes MKWii, and then there's all kinds of cute non-games she as a non-gaming second-grader might like -- Nintendogs, the entire Imagine series... and if you want to try to get her into some cute actual games, there's Kirby Superstar Ultra, The Legendary Starfy, Super Princess Peach, and other milder games available for her to try. If you'd like to try and get her into older platformers, too, the DS phat and lite are both equipped with the GBA slot, so that you can find the Super Mario Advance series for her to play as well. She may like those. :3

as for IMing, you may be thinking of PictoChat. PictoChat is only able to connect to other DS systems within its range (about 65 feet, according to Nintendo), and to be completely honest, it's the most useless part of the system. However, if she's wanting to play with her friends, she may get some fun out of it. Even if she can't read or write well yet, pictochat allows you to draw and doodle pictures and send those as 'messages' to the chat room at large (or, if she prefers, there's an on-screen keyboard that will allow her to hunt-and-peck for letters to type in with her stylus and make messages that way).

@Adam: it's pretty boring when a hurricane is just starting up, lol... after we moved to an actual house, we'd go out onto the back porch sometimes and watch, but the only reason i'd bother with actually stepping outside into a storm would be to take one of the dogs out, lol, or if the eye was passing over. after '98, I don't do tornadoes. :3 but I do do card games and other indoor activities.

I only remember actually evacuating for a hurricane twice... once was to a hotel, and the other was to my grandparents' house. evacuating was fun for us kids, lol. :3
